The Portrait Project – A CCS Commitment to our Students

This summer, our Media Arts teacher Ms. Austin Howell had the opportunity to visit High Tech High, a leading school in project-based learning in San Diego. You can read about Ms. Howell’s trip here.

Ms. Howell was inspired by High Tech High’s Arts program and their students’ passion for the Arts. Ms. Howell committed her summer to a project which shows our students how much they have an impact on CCS as a whole: she designed a digital portrait of each returning Upper School student. Each portrait took between two and four hours to complete! Ms. Howell took a time lapse video of her process, which you can view here.

These incredible portraits are on display in our Upper School building. This project represents one of the many ways the talented and dedicated teachers of CCS strive to connect with students on a deeper level!
